  1. In 04 I had Calimer's Wheel Shop build a wheel for me. I sent the hardware and two wood spokes, he built the wheel. It took 4 months to get the new one but he is busy. I did not prep the parts. He blasted the metal parts and returned it as shown. I am happy with wheel and will use him again.

  7. Check your local car museum; they sometime rent out cars for wedding & other events. The Packard Museum here in Dayton, OH rents a 1931 Packard town car for $275 the first hour and $100 each additional hour. The clock starts when the car leaves their garage. I was getting several requests a year. Checked out my insurance and was told the cost would be about $1,000 yearly. My antique coverage is about $106 yearly. Too much cost as the Insurance Co would make more money than me. Today, I politely suggest they use the museum. Bkazmer's suggestion should be your best bet. Plan on a gift and do it in cash. If there is a car show or cruse-in this weekend, go and talke with them this weekend.
  8. One suggestion is to move to Iowa. They still sell gasoline without ethonal. You can also get 10% and 85% if you want it. Remember, they grow the corn to make ethonal and you can get non ethonal gas. Check out my experience with using 10% ethonal in a car designed to use 10% ethonal. September 8th, I filled my 3.8 2008 Buick Lucienne in Ohio with 89 Octane (10% ethanol) and drove 450 miles at 70 MPH getting 27.3 MPG. On the return, I filled up in Iowa on September 13th with 87 Octane (zero ethanol) driving 450 miles at 70 MPH and got 31.4 MPG. In Iowa the ethanol gas was $2.55 a gallon. With no ethonal gas, the price was $2.69. The total cost with ethanol was $42.03 versus $38.55. This was a savings of $3.48. From my experience, I will always skip the ethanol gas additive when given the option.
  9. The wheel and rim will also fit a 1930 Chrysler and 1930/1931 Hupmobile. These appear to be front wheels. You can stick your finger in the backside of the wheel, check for a tapered hub with a slot for a key (back) or has a cup for a bearing (front). Or if you unscrew the hubcap, you can see if they are for a tapered axle (rear) or have a bearing cup (front).
  10. Last week, I filled my 3.8 2008 Buick Lucienne in Ohio with 89 Octane (10% ethanol) and drove 450 miles at 70 MPH getting 27.3 MPG. On the return, I filled up in Iowa with 87 Octane (zero ethanol) driving 450 miles at 70 MPH and got 31.4 MPG. In Iowa the ethanol gas was $2.55 a gallon. With all gas, the price was $2.69. The total cost with ethanol was $42.03 versus $38.55. This was a savings of $3.48. From my experience, I will always skip the ethanol gas additive when given the option.
  11. There is one on display in the Air Force Museum at Dayton, OH. They are not much of a car and this one is not restored. I haven't been there is several years and assume it is still on display. I congratulate you for keeping them running. I would think parts are not easily available.
  12. No, did not purchase the truck. I am too tight to over bid this buyer & I don't have a place for it or the know how to run & maintain it. I think he wanted it. It is an excellent parade truck.
  13. Truck sold at auction for $8,000. I talked with daughter who said her father restored the car in the late 50's. The kids used to used to pile in the back and ride around town ending up for ice cream. Yes, the paint has chipped in several places but it is shiny and clean.
  14. (SOLD FOR 8,000) Sat., Aug 28th this truck will be auctioned off. It is 15 miles south of Dayton, OH. The truck was restored 40 years ago and kept in a heated basement garage. The paint is very good with some signs of chipping or wear as I would expect. There is no rust and the engine appears to turn over with the crank. It has solid wheels in good condition with gouges around the edges. The owner passed away in Jan 2010 and no one knows how to start, shift, or drive the truck. I am interested in an approximate value for bidding. All photos were taken in the garage with a flash. feel free to post any questions.
  15. I need information on 1915 international truck, value, and how to start it. Any information will help. Truck is 1/2 way between Cincinnati & Dayton OH. <O:p></O:p> About Noon, Sat, Aug 28th this truck will be auctioned off. The truck was restored 40 years ago and kept in a heated garage. My guess is it is a 2.5 to 3.0 condition using Old Car Pricing standards.<O:p></O:p> <O:p></O:p> The owner passed away Jan 2010 and no one knows how he started it. <O:p></O:p> It is clean and shows signs of being kept in running condition but it has been 4 or 5 years since run. It appears the engine is not frozen. <O:p></O:p>
  16. What is the color of the 1931 GA license license plate? I have seen plates that are black with white letters and green with white letters. Did GA use both colors? If so what conditions warranted black or green?
  17. There is a Model T for sale just east of Dayton, OH. Check out the ad in the attachment. Advertized in the western OHIO AUTO & RV mag.
  18. Vintage and classic reproductions makes stainless steel units. Their web page is Welcome the 1932 window crank is at web page http://www.vintageandclassicreproductions.com/CHE-084.jpg The price is $98.00 Australian plus shipping cost. A couple of years ago, I purchased from them with no problems.
  19. Have you done an ENGINE CYLINDER CHECK? If you have a valve problem, it will tell you which cylinder has a problem and if the problem is the intake or exhaust valve. If the manual valve adjustment is set too close, you can burn a valve over time. When the valve clearance is set too close, the valve will not completely close when the engine heats up.
  20. My guess is that it would connect to the heater. If I am wrong, someone please please speak up and correct me.
  21. Is there a date on the box? Did instructions come in the box?

It is about 4 inches long and fits a 1 ¾ inch inside diameter hose.. The unit with the hoses attached is about 8 inches long. It has a smaller fitting a hose about ¾ of inch inside diameter. There is a dial in the middle that turns about 350 degrees with the words “HIGH” and “LOW” on the top Inside one side is a butterfly valve and the other side looks like a thermostat. Check out the photos and let me know if you need a different angle. I will post it on the FOR SALE forum should someone be interested. Anyone want to make an estimate on its value.<o:p></o:p>
  23. I show a 1937 Mullins (Luggage) trailer with my car as a unit. I need an exception to "Absolutely no trailer or RV parking at the host hotel." This is a restored unit and matches the my car. The size is about 5 X 8 foot. I can see a volunteer worker standing at the entrance saying "I was told no trailers". Just interested in avoiding any problems.
  24. Will be driving our 1931 Hupmobile towing a 1937 Mullins trailer, 165 miles in from Dayton OH, Wednesday morning. Should arrive at the Crowne Plaza hotel close to noon. We are newbie’s as this is our first national meet. We plan to tour during the week and show in the driver participation class Saturday. I am traveling two lane state roads and avoiding I-75 & I-71. My wife will be coming later, by interstate, in her modern air conditioned Buick. Looking forward to meeting people and picking up tips on touring and maintenance. Claire & Jack Dwyer
